If this film is available in DVD Format (Original French) - region 2 - Europe - I would love to acquire a copy..
WHEN I first saw this film, in London, in 1958, I was bowled over. I had never seen a film like this before. It had a strange, hypnotic effect, quite unlike the films that I had seen previously and it left a lasting impact.
I believe that Odile Versios & Marina Vlady are sisters, if not twins. Certainly the interaction is amazing in its power to influence the viewer.
If this has been converted to DVD - in Region 2 format - and in the original French language, I would love to hear about it & where it can be purchased.
